Community Engagement

There are many ways to become involved in activities that help to make the community you live in more vibrant. We need the participation of all our citizens to insure our community continues to improve and thrive.

Transform Rockford

The Transform Rockford mission is to facilitate the creation and implementation of a strategic plan by the community for the purposes of dramatically improving the social and economic well-being of the community and its residents. The initiative is about true transformation – not just incremental improvement – in which everyone’s thoughts and voices will contribute to its success. This inclusive approach is based on the belief that better ideas and plans come to the forefront when those affected the most have input throughout the process of making the plans.
